Workshop Session 1
Digital Peer Recovery Support Services for a Changing Landscape
WEconnect, Unity, and RecoveryLink have enjoyed a relationship built on collaborative partnership and mutual-aid which benefits both the people we serve and our organizations. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we worked together rapidly to launch our first digital All Recovery meeting. The online meetings grew exponentially, and we expanded our partnership with The Alano Club of Portland, Oregon as well as SOS Recovery Community Organization in New Hampshire. Today we have a thriving digital recovery community spanning the globe. We will share our learnings on delivering peer recovery support services pre-, during, and “post-” pandemic both digitally and in-person in this changing landscape.
